    I am so used to browsing through menus with my mouse to learn a program - that's the barrier for VIM methinks. for VIM cheatsheets and print one out. I mean, I need a cheatsheet just to navigate the help system.

    Once you've learnt the commands for the things you do frequently, you'll like it. But because I don't use it often (usually when I'm debugging apache or something and I just want to be over and done with it), I never learn anything new (because I can't be bothered remembering how to access the help system).

    In contrast, with "windows/menu" type programs I tend to learn new features without trying...

    So there's a VIM newbie point-of-view for ya!

    Dreamweaver and TextWrangler.


    You forgot TextWrangler - a Mac OS/X app on the Windows side equal to UltraEdit

    Maybe a re-poll, include all the IDE's you are aware of, but combine the text editors into a single "Text Editor" category before someone tells you they use MS Word or Wordstar.

    As a poor arts student relying on hand-me-downs, I was using it in '93.

    Yeah, I remember when WordStar was the thing, along with a little thing called Lotus.

    Sausage HotDog for all coding. I know at least one other person on this forum uses it. It may be a dinosaur, but I like that it allows you to hand code and instantly preview, plus it has nice features like context highlight, custom tag creation, macros, native ftp, multi-browser preview, multi-file find/replace, and more.

    I'm all over the place..... Dreamweaver (work) and PHPEdit (home) sometimes but the most reliable editor I use is UltraEdit. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    PHP Designer 2006

    I used to use Dreamweaver, but PHP Designer seems to use up less resources and it does practically the same thing (and it's free :P). The only problem with PHP Designer is that the built-in FTP client can't go into PASV mode .

    Sweet, I've been avoiding upgrading to DW8, but it does handy stuff like highlight stuff between opening and closing braces and the you can collapse it so that stuff is only visible in a popup box. I freaking love it man!! All hail DW (code view, for whatever reason design view has always been screwy! Don't really care for WYSIWYG, creates really sloppy code)

    I used EditPlus and TextPad, usually both at the same time for all my coding, and when I'm editing files via ftp client I use Notepad.

    I use EditPlus the most though. I agree it should be on the list, great hand coding program, been using it and TextPad a long time and TextPad you can write and compile binary.

    Tried a lot of editors, must say I love Crimson Editor the most. Have been using it for years. My only complaint is that they haven't released a new version in a while and I could really use a "Save a Copy" I like simplicity, and Crimson Editor has a nice interface. 'Tis the same reason I use Filezilla over other FTP software.

    i use PHP Designer 2005, but that web builder 2005 from hyperactive's sig looks promising.

    my FTP client is smartFTP, so i don't use the builtin one.

    Never got into coding with HotDog. Been a MAc OS/X convert for over a year. But, back in the day on the PC side I used dreamweaver for my HTML work and used UltraEdit32 -- and UE still kicks ****. Since then, I moved to the Mac side and got Textwrangler (free)...but Since improvments included in DW MX 2004, which I run now, I typically do my php coding with it, good syntax markup too. I still run TextWrangler, typically when I need to load up a CSV file, or hex edit something, it comes in handy. But, I'm finding myself doing all my html work with DW MX 2004, including all my PHP coding. A weird transition at first, but after a long while got a good knack for it and it does everything I need.

    It would be nice if DW, while in HTML mode or something would show you the PHP output in real time while editing, that would be really nice.

    try TruStudio Foundation for the mac. i mostly use PC, but when i'm on a mac i've found this to be the best free IDE, and the best use of Java for a mac.
